MAY WE tell you what has been going on this month?
Well the weather is cooler, but not really what I would called late autumn weather. I have reduced my watering, not just changing to every second day, but judging on a daily basis. The growth of trees has definitely slowed, and daylight hours are shorter, requiring trees to be cleaned out of old foliage, placed in more sun and rotated to let in as much light and air flow into interior of trees. We are still fertilising, but only once a month or so.
This is a wonderful time of year to really appreciate your trees, and I like to prepare new pre bonsai stock for Spring.
